Clients and Kudos

Sharon was incredibly helpful when I was considering new career opportunities. She was a guide and a support, helping me make the best decision by looking at the pros and cons with fresh eyes.

I was fortunate to have utilized Sharon for both a difficult facilitated faculty retreat and later as a transitional coach.  She brought a wealth of experience to both roles.  By not ignoring the elephant in the room and asking probing yet considerate questions, she was able to help our faculty and then me make key decisions and transitions.  Several of the faculty later asked if we could bring her back for follow up sessions.  I highly recommend her as both a facilitator, coach and mentor.

Sharon has been a Godsend for ACPM on several key grant proposals.  We were successful on two groundbreaking grants–one each from HRSA and CDC–which would not have been possible without her exceptional work as a lead grant writer.  Her training and experience in primary care, preventive medicine, and public health, with her ability to produce high quality proposal drafts under extremely tight deadlines, made her an indispensable part of the team.  I would say retaining Sharon was a very wise investment for us, indeed, and would highly recommend her services.

Sharon provided facilitation for one of our more complex meetings and she was tremendous. Her approach was thoughtful and inclusive and she rapidly synthesized large amounts of information, allowing us to move forward in a productive and cohesive way. She is highly professional as well as intuitive and observant, which is a rare and valuable skill set.
